You shouldn't have to download a trial of Java... it's free. That tells me that you probably downloaded the wrong thing.

Try this... http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

A couple of weeks ago, I got a weird message saying that I needed to download Adobe Flash to watch something on this site... so if you get that message, uninstall the flash you have and download and install it again. Worked for me.

So if the java thing doesn't work, try uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash.

after all the downloading, installing, uninstalling, and downloading again along with a few choice words "of just turn it off and walk away from it", it works fine. As though nothing was wrong in the first place.

This was just a test of the emergency "Get Quigs to download, install, uninstall, pull his hair out, raise his blood pressure and make him give up and walk away" system.

Had this been an actual emergency...


It would have been totally funny to watch!!

Oh I've had my share of "OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED" moments.

Like when I bought my new external hard drive. I turned it on, THEN turned on my computer, but my computer wouldn't come on... I thought "Oh NO!!! I just fried my computer!"

It's a simple process of starting my computer first, then turning on my hard drive.

Just havin' some fun, Quigs!

okay, Apology accepted. Considering though what happened for two and half weeks with my computer, you can't really blame me for being pensive and slightly annoyed; can you?

It's understandable to be annoyed when computers just won't cooperate... and I didn't sense you being all that annoyed. Which is probably why I was being such a smart-aleck.

Hows the computer running now?

Not bad. My friend from church sighted it was the wireless connection and set me and my room mate back up. Speaking of backs, how's yours? Feeling better I hope.

Have you ever been in so much pain it made you cry?

That's where I am now. But, I'm at work, chuggin' away. Pray that the Motrin kicks in soon.

I occasionally discover that a given web site will have a petit-mal seizure and insist that I need javascript when I know it's installed. When that happens, I've found the following to be handy:

1 - Restart the computer. All sorts of bizarre things happen when your system's memory gets a snarl, and the only way to sort things out is a restart.

2 - Check your browser for updates.

3 - Try another browser. Especially for Internet Explorer 6 users on Windows 2000 or lower. Firefox has at least some of the latest features, and runs on older operating systems, for example.

4 - Try another operating system. When the problem is an inexplicable but temporary one, and you have another computer with, say, Linux or a Mac or something other than your usual operating system, sometimes you can watch on that system when your main computer doesn't work.

5 - Clear your cache. I hate to say it, because it's always the first thing "tech support" people say to me when anyone with the IQ of a slightly retarded gerbil can see that couldn't be the problem (deep breath), but sometimes it helps.

6 - Scream, swear, and throw things. It won't solve the problem, but the people who come to take you away will give you medication that makes you stop caring.

Good luck.

I have done all that was suggested (but only a little bit of
6) I could not do 4 and did the cache thing in 5 and still no success. I am resolved to downloading the files and watching and burning them as well onto disc. Why not, it was advice I gave someone else with the exact problem a few months ago. Thanks to all who gave their sage advice of what to do. It was appreciated.

what is going on? First, I can watch online and now it's back to where it was two days ago with Java script nonsense.

Weird. Have there been any site maintenance or upgrade activities around here lately?

Has your ISP been trying to "upgrade" the system lately with features you don't want or need? Every time mine does that, it screws up the connection for a week or so. Then they sort it out and everything's fine until the next upgrade.

Has your internet connection been really slow lately, and does your modem show signs of constant (steady) activity even when you're not online? You might want to update your anti-virus software and see if it finds something.

I've had this sort of thing happen before, and usually it sorts itself out in about a week without my doing anything. Annoying, though.

Retrojunkie, I think you hit the nail on the head. It recently has been slower and so I ran a full system eith my anti virus software and it picked that up.
